Loved and Labored

Words

His curiosity about people’s faces brought Shoey Nam to produce his series ‘Loved and Labored’, where every face can tell a story on its own. To illustrate this he chooses a set of literature figures, as writers have the tendency to carry a certain haggardness and cynicism of the world on their faces. Trying to depicted the figures mannerisms he formed lines, traces and marks on their faces that suggest their habitual face expressions. Shoey Nam is a graphic designer and illustrator living in London.
